Product Description

The MacGuffin’s Winter 2018 issue highlights the winners of our 22nd National Poet Hunt Contest. Guest judge Naomi Shihab Nye gives a short introduction on page 102 followed by the contest’s winning poem, Bethany Reid’s memorial “The Last Time I Heard Her Play the Piano,” and the two Honorable Mentions penned by Kathleen McClung and Sue Fagalde Lick. In the prose category, Anna Vangela Jones’ father-daughter tennis match of “Tape and Glue” will keep you riveted until the final set and Laura Grace Tarpley’s “Two Weeks in Africa” will provide some helpful hints for your next intercontinental trip.
